Serving the Community
Management students also complete consulting projects and conduct workshops for clients in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors. Since fall 2008, senior business undergraduate and graduate students in the business capstone course have partnered with local and regional businesses to find solutions to a variety of strategic business problems. Senior level management majors also conduct leadership workshops for local middle school students and real business clients each semester.
